About us

Kameli Travel Ltd. (in Finnish Kamelimatkat) is a small Finnish tour operator specialising in the Sahara, the Horn of Africa and West Africa – areas where few travellers have yet to find their way. With over ten years of experience in Africa, good destination knowledge and a comprehensive and reliable network of contacts, we can tailor the best possible trip for you – whether it's a long weekend in Lagos or a two-week camel trek with Tuaregs in Algeria or in Niger. We also offer a range of guided tours, which can also be arranged at a time of your choosing.

We work with locals in each country to ensure that as much of the financial benefit as possible stays in the country of destination. This also ensures the best and most up-to-date information about your destination.

The safety of our customers is our top priority, and we do not organise trips to dangerous destinations. In addition, we constantly monitor the safety situation in our area of operation with our local partners. During your trip, we are available around the clock.

We have lodged a guarantee with the Finnish Competition and Consumer Authority (registration number: 908/23/Mj) as required by the Package Travel Act, so your money is safe and will be returned to you even if we have to cancel your trip for security reasons or due to a pandemic, for example.

Best wishes,
